Advanced Boro Weekend

January 7th - January 8th
Sally Prasch |

Sally will cover artistic and scientific techniques in borosilicate glass. Sculpture, murrini, and glass chains are among the many possibilities. Some of the scientific techniques may include side, ring and blind seals. With lots of individual attention, students are encouraged to bring sketches and ideas. Emphasis will be on exploration, spontaneity, investigation, and fun.

What to expect: Flameworking requires a little practice at heat control with the torch to create successful pieces. After demonstrations, expect to make some successful objects in this class, and a couple failures, while gaining confidence and skill in the studio. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility: Some experience with flameworking or beadmaking required. Open to ages 14 and up.

Pick-up: The glass needs to cool down overnight, so the students will have to return to UrbanGlass once notified to pick up their work from Sunday. Work made on Saturday will likely be ready to take home after class on Sunday. 

This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration.
